from. the place in which he was born and raised. the texas hill country. i've talked about the hill country before, but i don't think you can talk about it too much, particularly in new york city. i saw what that meant growing up there myself, and it was quite a shock. i grew up in new york city, which is this place of fast-paced conversations and busy streets, theaters, and everything else. there was then a 9:00 plane from la guardia to austin. i take that plane, and sometimes when i got off that plane, i felt you rent a car and drive west out of austin into the hill country, and in those days i felt like i was iffing from one end of the earth to the other. i'll never forget the first time i drove out there. about 40 miles out of johnson -- out of austin as you are heading towards johnson city. there's a rise. they call it round mountain, but it's really just a tall hill. as i came to the top, something made me pull my car over to the side of the road to get out on the shoulder and look down in front of me because i was looking at something that i had never seen before in my life.
